Optical Spectrum Analyzer AQ6317B

High-accuracy and high-resolution optical spectrum analyzer for evaluating D-WDM systems and components.

High-accuracy and high-resolution optical spectrum analyzer for evaluating D-WDM systems and components.

The AQ6317B is an advanced optical spectrum analyzer for a wide range of applications, including light source evaluation, measurement of loss wavelength characteristics in optical devices, and waveform analysis of WDM (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) systems. Especially at C-band and L-band, the unit achieves high wavelength accuracy and wavelength linearity, and can evaluate optical devices for WDM. Analysis functions make operation and expandability simple. The AQ6317B contains the latest Ando technology for optical spectrum analyzers. A reference equipment for the next generation. In comparison with the former model, the wavelength accuracy of the AQ6317B has been improved to 20 pm, and it is specified as for the L-band as well. WDM analysis function and notch width analysis function are improved, and multi-channel NF analysis function and optical filter analysis function are newly added. It has become much easier to use with other improvements, such as sweep speed-up.

q Wide dynamic range for 50 GHz WDM-Signals The dynamic range is 70 dB at peak 0.4 nm, and 60 dB at peak 0.2 nm. High-resolution measurement achieves wide dynamic range with 50 GHz spacing WDM system. q High wavelength accuracy Provides 0.02 nm wavelength accuracy at 1520 to 1580 nm, and 0.04 nm at 1580 to 1620 nm, with 0.01 nm wavelength linearity, making it especially useful for high-precision loss wavelength characteristics and other evaluation of WDM devices. The wavelength scale indicates both in air and in vacuum. q High wavelength resolution Achieves wavelength resolution of 0.015 nm. q Versatile analysis functions Analysis functions for WDM and other optical devices (LD, LED, FBG, etc.). q Synchronous sweep In conjunction with an AQ4321 Tunable Laser Source, much higher wavelength resolution/wide dynamic range can be achieved by high-speed synchronous sweep. q High sensitivity High sensitivity allows measurement of light at down to -90 dBm, covering from 1200 to 1650 nm. q Low polarization dependency Measurements such as gain of optical amplifier can be proceeded accurately because polarization dependency is suppressed as low as 0.05 dB. q High-level accuracy Accurate within 0.3 dB. q High power measurement: Max. +20 dBm (100 mW) Even high-power output from an optical amplifier can be measured directly without an optical attenuator. q 9.4-inch color LCD q Pulsed light can be measured

q Three individual trace memories

Optical Spectrum Analyzer AQ6317B Applications

q Optical Multiplexer evaluation In conjunction with the AQ4321 Tunable Laser Source, the AQ6317B can achieve high wavelength resolution/wide dynamic range with high-speed synchronous sweep function, and result insertion loss, passed central wavelength and linearity as evaluation parameter of optical MUX/DEMUX.

q Optical fiber amplifier (EDFA) evaluation The ASE interpolation method is used to measure gain and NF, key parameters for optical fiber amplifier evaluation. In conjunction with the AQ8423Z optical amplifier analyzer, the system can accurately measure gain and NF with the pulse method, which is optimum for evaluation of WDM optical fiber amplifiers.
